Watching our players influenced/biting on EVERY single fake, they aren't doing the jobs they were coached to do. The instant the player assigned to take the QB bites on a fake instead of hitting the qb like they were coached....it's over.

no contain, no blitz to disrupt, no penetration
maybe we need a coach with a defensive background...

Didn't count 'em, but seems Army ran the option all the way down the field. Incredible!!

To be fair, it's not like Diaco faced options while at ND- oh, wait, NAVY

I looked it up, Navy scored 35, 14, 10, 34 against Diaco's defenses at ND. Notre dame's offense scored more in the last 3 games. As in 56, 50, 38.

No one is attacking and drilling the QB, we have slow DE's playing pattycake.

Good call on the qb....proof the players are UNDISCIPLINED....if you are doing your job & ignoring the pitch, you should be lighting up the qb .

For crying out loud. The simplest thing in defending the option is getting the QB to pitch ASAP. You do that by going right at him not trying to mirror him down the LOS.

Indeed, 2 high safeties is mind-blowing.

It's amazing how when we give Foxx the ball, Army knows IMMEDIATELY to swarm.

Mind boggling. Hit the frigging QB! Graham Stewart has been abused all game.

Anyone that has played any football video game knows you have to bring your safeties up to stop the option.

Still in shock over how we played against this offense. The players were beaten by poor preparation.

terrible D against the most predictable offense we've ever played against. and on offense, I hope Tim Boyle starts next game over Chandler Whitmer. that INT was a rookie decision, still shaking my head. Whitmer is a good guy, but not the best QB for us to win games
